Renown leakster Evan Blass (@evleaks) says that the upcoming Moto G5S Plus will add to the success of the Moto G5 and the Moto G5 Plus while bringing improvements in the areas of build materials, photography and display size.
The Moto G5S Plus, in contrast to the Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus, will have a build quality made of anodized aluminum instead of plastic, which is a build material often used for more budget smartphones. The display size of the Moto G5S Plus will be a 5.5-inch Full HD display, in contrast to the 5-inch Full HD display of the Moto G5 and 5.2-inch Full HD display of the Moto G5 Plus. Gorilla Glass 3 remains on board here, so no Gorilla Glass 4 or 5 should be expected on the upcoming mid-ranger.
As for the camera photography, Lenovo intends to place a dual rear camera setup on the back cover, with two 13MP sensors (one color, one black-and-white) to replace the single, 12MP rear camera sensor on the Moto G5 Plus, and an 8MP front camera sensor to replace the 5MP sensor found on the Moto G5 Plus. The dual rear camera setup responds to modern trends in the smartphone space, but the new parent company for Motorola is making the dual camera layout a new feature for the mid-range space. Motorola’s success in the smartphone space has been in the mid-range and low-end lineups with the Moto G and the Moto E series.
Other innards of the Moto G5S Plus consist of the 2GHz, octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 SoC, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. The handset isn’t the only phone coming from the Lenovo-owned company this year, as rumors continue to heat up about the Moto Z2 Force and Google Project Fi-compatible Moto X4. The latter is not expected to arrive at Motorola’s upcoming #hellomotoworld event scheduled for July 25th, but the Moto Z2 Force and the Moto G5S Plus most certainly will.
